This is a day hike to Burnt Lake, continuing partway up East Zigzag Mountain. We were scouting campsites for an upcoming backpacking trip. There are seven designated sites at Burnt Lake, all marked with signage. The hike in to the lake is moderately easy. Be sure to take the side trail to a viewpoint of the creek and a waterfall.
